2. Connected Experience and proactive support~
Everyone likes to have an assurance of immediate help & support, and trust service providers who can speak from a position of authority. In the car rental industry, providing immediate support through instant customer service, sending proactive notification of a faulty situation with the car (sensor technology and telematics), offering real-time support (alert roadside assistance or the service center) are some of the measures that we provide to help you out.
Based on the rental data collected, we identify their super customers (customer segmentation analysis) and look to reward them by running personalized campaigns & incentivized bookings, and by upgrading offers around the year. This also helps us in creating a great customer base who act as the brand ambassadors for the car rental provider and continue to remain loyal. Upon using the partner networks and blockchain-enabled technology, we allow their customers to redeem the loyalty points with multiple partners. Stats reveal that 80% of a company’s future revenue would come from 20% of existing customers; thus proving that retention and loyalty play a pivotal role.
